A thread on #SunderlalBahuguna:

1. The best way to pay homage to a legend is to, at least, after his passing, reflect upon her/his life and works critically. To learn the right lessons from the lives of such public persons who impacted others' lives disproportionately.
2. SLB and Chandi Prasad Bhatt created and speared a brand of environmentalism that further hurt the hills of Uttarakhand and its people. This legacy of the two was whitewashed by urban environmental writers and activists.
3. The so-called Chipko movement decoupled environmentalism from labour and rights in the hills of Uttarakhand. It became a brand but to become that the logic of the movement was turned on its head. Chandi ji and Sundarlal ji contributed to that.
